Mitch Evans has topped the morning session on the final day of post-season testing in Abu Dhabi.

Richie Stanaway set the early pace in cool conditions until the first red flag period was sparked by Sean Gelael who spun at turn 18.

André Negrão went top when the session went green again but the red flags came out soon after when Artur Janosz stopped on the back straight. When proceedings resumed Negrão found some extra pace to better his own time at the top of the standings.

Two more red flags hit the morning session: Richie Stanaway and Pierre Gasly both stopped out on the circuit on separate occasions.

In the closing minutes Mitch Evans driving for Campos found his ultimate pace and went into first place with a time of 1:48.922.
